A Space to Heal Upstate Community Initiative
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Funded by Lululemon, Local Organization Offers Healing Circle for People of Color
The Hive Community Circle, a local cultural specific peer advocacy non-profit supporting survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence and stalking, invites Black Indigenous People of Color in the Midlands area to participate in a healing cirlcle-A Space to Heal. A Space to Heal is an intentionally curated safe and affirming space for participants to connect and consider what healing and liberation mean for themselves.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has highlighted racial and social injustices experienced by the BIPOC community and has exacerbated the disparities in access to safe and supportive spaces for people in traditionally marginalized groups. This event will create space for participants to explore what it means to feel safe, seen, and supported while re-imagining a world where those conditions are consistently present. The virtual event will feature dialogue, reflection, and movement. Event participants will receive a resource box.
The Hive Community Circle is offering A Space to Heal in partnership with Charleston-based Transformation Yoga Studios and with Safe Seen Supported, an organization centering Black women’s experiences. The Upstate event is the second of a series of four healing circles being offered in 2021.
Lululemon, an athletic apparel and technical clothing company, awarded The Hive funding for the series in the Fall of 2020 as a part of their Here to Be Program- a global social justice initiative designed to disrupt inequity in well-being through movement, mindfulness, and advocacy for Black Indigenous People of Color.
